More People Are Speaking Up About Botox

A good friend and I have a monthly brunch date, and I always look forward to seeing her. The last time we met up, she mentioned that she'd be coming straight from the salon. She looked fantastic — well-rested, relaxed, happy. "That is one amazing haircut," I said. It totally transformed her look. Amazing what a snip can do, I thought, and every so often I'd remark on the transformative powers of the haircut.

After the third compliment, she stopped me. "Well, it's not all the haircut," she admitted. "I got Botox last week, too." Turns out she used the haircut as a (highly effective) foil for those of us marveling at the transformation. And she's not the only one to talk about her adventures in botulism toxin: a recent study showed that only 13 percent of people kept their Botox use private. A few years ago, most people were reticent when it came to discussing their cosmetic procedures, but that isn't the case anymore. (Can you guess which celebrities have admitted to using Botox?) As for me, I have yet to want to rock the 'tox, but I wouldn't hide it if I did. If you've tried Botox, are you open about it? And if you haven't tried it, do you think you'd keep it a secret or not?

I can't see myself ever wanting to use botox. I don't see whats wrong with looking your age as long as you age gracefully.

I don't know how I'd feel about injecting toxin into my face but I used to work with a woman who had botox (which she freely admitted to) and all I can say is she looked amazing. It took years off her face. I don't know if she kept it up and what state her face is in right now, but that first go definitely impressed me.

I know someone who is my age and has had tons of botox. She's starting to get an odd look to her, like she might have been a man at one point kind of look. I'm OK passing on that. I wish there was a less scary way to stay looking younger.

i don't like that this is becoming so acceptable. do the people done wrong by botox speak up too? not only that, but that means that everybody else is doing it...and when me and my peers get to say 40, i am gonna look, well, 40, and they will all look botox'd up. dammit. things are gonna get competitive.

Rock the 'tox. Too funny. I would be more open to the idea of this kind of procedure, if it wasn't injecting poison into the face. Maybe I'm not that well versed in other options though.
